"You were not sad when you learnt about Rex Maina."

President William Ruto has come under fire after mourning Jubilee Christian Church (JCC) founder Bishop Allan Kiuna who passed away on Tuesday, July 9.

In a statement on Wednesday, July 10, the president remarked that Bishop Kiuna was a dedicated Christian leader who inspired many people to follow Christian teachings.

The Head of State said he was with the family in their moment of grief, adding that he was praying for them to find the courage to bear it.

"It is with profound sorrow that I learned of the passing of Bishop Allan Kiuna. I join the Christian community in mourning his death. Bishop Kiuna was a dedicated Christian leader who founded the Jubilee Christian Church (JCC) and inspired many to follow the teachings of the Lord.

"To his wife, Rev. Kathy Kiuna and family, we stand with you in this time of grief and mourning, and pray that you find the courage to persevere through this trying period. May he rest in peace," President Ruto stated.

His remarks, however, did not go down well with a section of Kenyans online who were quick to react.

Some users on the X platform wondered if it was difficult for the president to mourn in the same way the Kenyans who lost their lives during the anti-finance bill protests.
